Solution.... Get a new job. If it was really that big of a deal they wouldn't be able to keep employees. I spent two years working at a chicken plant, it's not a hard job.

The next time you go to the grocery store to buy boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.99/lb remember what it takes to make chicken that cheap. At that price, it’s insane to think that anyone in that food production chain can be treated well and still provide a profit to the company. I just wish I knew if the companies that sold their products for more were treating their workers better,.

It's funny that I have actually heard about all of this from the knife problem to the pissing on the line. Apparently the urinating on the line thing was not due to performance needs but just the level of care they took with the food. It was just a case they didn't care and that was the level of employee they hired.

There were times in human history when people didn't know much about tooth care, or showering, or washing their hands after they take a shit. They weren't very healthy or long-lived during these times. You will never brush your teeth or wipe your ass into immortality, but still, we know for certain that cleaner living is smarter, healthier, and smells better. I've been vegan since 1995 and have worked online since 2012. I'm a Buddhist, and understand we are evolving, but the trouble you all put yourselves through is, to me, starting to look deserved.
BlueNeuro Prieš 5 val
so, why does it take someone on HBO to talk about this shit? cuz i dont hear anything about this topic. i know problems come from unions, but this is just an argument to unionize if i ever heard one. i believe unions should be mandatory for any factory jobs if you're just a standard worker , this is just bat shit crazy.

I see the issue being ultimately dealt with with technology. Computer controlled carving stations replacing workers seems like what will eventually happen. If minimum wages go up and regulations get tighter, these megacompanies will invest money to automate the process as much as possible.

Democrats should be ashamed themselves for letting this happen to workers. Too much regulation means smaller companies are booted out of competing with bigger companies.

Really unusual this episode starts with John touching up on Cuomo's nursing home cover-up and procedure , meat packing, and Ted Cruz. Out of the 30 minute episode, 98% is about Ted Cruz and the meatpacking. John considers himself moral and a voice for the people. 28 minutes of covering partisan issues to his favoring where maybe 200 people died versus the Cuomo event where thousands died. Cuomo received 10 seconds of airtime. What a partisan hack that has a moral compass that needs to be reset.

Wow, talk about timely... I was just offered a job at a local chicken processing plant as an occupational nurse. I can understand the frustration of the employees thinking we really can't do anything to help them and they are correct. All we are legally allowed to do is basic first aid (bandaids and Tylenol) and refer them to the weekly on-site doctor for chronic conditions. Obviously if there is an urgent situation we are the first ones to respond and have to call 911. I would also be in charge of worker's comp claims, being told that I have to "weed out the fakers since no one really wants to do this job." Yeah, no shit. It's cold, wet, and they are constantly covered in chicken parts. Plus I got that casual racism vibe that's unfortunately very common down here in the deep South, as most of the workers are either minorities and ex-cons. Definitely a lot to consider before I accept the offer.
